While Kisses referred to their ‘Domino’ task to be the one that tested her patience, she said that it was the ‘Army’ task that drained her emotionally, mentally and physically. “As in parang naghihingalo na talaga ako that time kasi kailangan maging mabilis… Chinallenge talaga ako,” she said, recalling that she was also the assistant leader during that time. “Sobrang saya ‘nun nanalo kami kaya grabe, unforgettable talaga.”
However, it was the ‘Beauty Queen’ task that changed her perception in life. It will be recalled that female teens Kisses, Maymay Entrata. and Vivoree Esclito plus two Brazilian guest housemates Stephanie Vaz and Maria Fabiana, competed in a beauty pageant.
“’Dun talaga parang nag-change ‘yung perception ko about beauty pageants na naisip ko na may masaya pa palang bagay kaysa sa manalo sa beauty pageant kasi dati, ‘yung goal ko lang, gusto ko talagang manalo as in super competitive ako. Pero, pagdating ‘dun sa beauty pageant na ‘yun, parang alam mo ‘yun, parang iba na ‘yung gusto mo. Parang mas gusto mo nang manalo ‘yung friend mo rin kasi alam mong pangarap niya rin ‘yun,” Kisses, who won 1st runner-up in the contest, said.
Moreover, she also implied that her self-discovery came as a surprise. “So that time talaga, as in sobrang sarap sa feeling na may narealize kang bago about sa sarili mo kasi ngayon ko lang ‘yun nadiscover na gano’n pala ako.”
